Furniture World News on

The International Casual Furniture & Accessories Market™ announced that it will, once again, feature the Garden Accessories Courtyard, a 10,000-square-foot area that is home to exhibitors showcasing outdoor accessories. This dedicated area will be located on the Northwest side of the 8th Floor Market Suites during Market.
The Garden Accessories Courtyard is where buyers can find exhibitors featuring decorative accessories, outdoor lighting, hearth products, tabletop, rugs, pottery, statuary and much more.
Accessories have become an integral way for retailers to increase their store’s profits. As an easy last-minute purchasing option, accessories not only add to a store’s merchandising mix, they also add to their bottom line. Accessories are the go-to-component to update and complete an outdoor room.
